ProC and DMC on the Grid

'ProC and DMC on the Grid' is a Grid use case developed within the AstroGrid-D project. The use case was designed and largely implemented at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics, Garching. The ProC is interfaced to the Grid Application Toolkit (GAT), which allows the execution of jobs on the submission host, on clusters via the PBS and SGE GAT adapters, and on the Grid, using the Globus Toolkit 2 and 4 GAT adapters for process-to-process communication.
